Painting Workshops Painting Holidays

Hello and welcome to my website

I'm delighted to announce my 2020 Painting workshops - go to 2020 Art Workshops page on this website for details.

If you're not already on my mailing list, and you'd like to ensure you get the details of all additional workshops in the future - use my 'Contact' page and send me an email asking to be put on my general mailing list.

This year again, I'm delighted to continue working with Schoolhouse for Art, Enniskerry. I'm also running a couple of short workshops from my studio in Cross, PLUS I'm returning to the south of France for a 4 day Painting Holiday.

I've also been asked to run private workshops with specific Art Groups in Ireland which are not publicised on this website.

On this website you can also

  • See examples of my art
  • Get details of all my Art Workshops
  • Buy selected paintings directly from this site
  • Link to galleries that sell my work
  • Commission a painting from me
  • Reserve a place on one of my Art Workshops
  • Request an Art Demonstration for your local Irish Art Group

I hope you enjoy my website and I'd love to hear what you think of it.


Some feedback from previous years' Workshop participants

Gosh, you do give value for money, thanks!!!  JH

Thanks again for a brilliant 3 days.  If someone said to me I can have 2 weeks in the sun or a 3 day course again I would pick the course hands down.  Absolutely Magic!     TL

What a weekend John. Wow it was mind blowing.  You have certainly opened my eyes not only to art but also to 'the world' around me.    C SL

We had a fantastic time and I feel we learnt so much over the three days .  It was all delivered with great structure and clarity and with such ease.   LH

I have never been to an art workshop before – this was great and much better than I anticipated or even thought.

It helped me with the ‘how’ and process of painting, I learned more in one day than twenty years of book reading.

I loved everything about the workshop and you personally with your very good sense of fun and humour, you are a wonderful teacher.   MC.

I have learned more in one week with you than I have with all the courses I have done in the past.   AF
